I have had some acquaintances ask me about short films after listening to me talk about The Exit Bag. Some had no idea that there were actually Oscar-worthy films out there that were less than feature-length films.
Here is a list of the five live action short films nominated for Oscars this year. Some you can watch online. Others you will have to go to a film festival to catch.
Reed Van Dyk
The Eleven O’Clock
Derin Seale and Josh Lawson
My Nephew Emmett
Kevin Wilson, Jr.
The Silent Child
Chris Overton and Rachel Shenton
Watu Wote/All of Us
Katja Benrath and Tobias Rosen
Google the titles and you should at least find trailers for these films.
